After much anticipation, modern heavy symphonic titans, KAMELOT,announced the upcoming release of their most introspective, uplifting, vital release to date – their first full-length in five years, The Awakening, out 17th March 2023 via Napalm Records. The Awakeningenters the KAMELOT legacy as their most massive and diverse offering yet – mixing symphonic, gothic, melodic, progressive and power metal styles while yielding some of the heaviest tracks in the band’s history.
Following the release of the album’s widely-lauded debut single, ‘One More Flag in the Ground‘ and operatic anthem ‘Opus of the Night (Ghost Requiem)‘, featuring Grammy nominated, soundtrack-featured cellist Tina Guo, KAMELOT have revealed the new album’s third single – the massive ‘Eventide’. The track is a modernised banger of epic proportions, featuring the band’s lauded trademark soundscapes and exploring heartfelt themes of lifelong companionship, unwavering loyalty and lasting memories.

KAMELOT vocalist Tommy Karevik offers: “‘Eventide’ is a celebration of lifelong companionship and unwavering loyalty. A calming voice from the side of the bed in the greatest time of need, sharing beautiful memories as one heart is slowing down and their time together is coming to an end.”
KAMELOT will tour the world in support of The Awakening and embark on their European Awaken The World tour this week. UK dates to be announced soon.
Having reigned supreme with the release of internationally top-charting melodic metal pinnacles such as The Fourth Legacy (1999), The Black Halo (2005), Silverthorn (2012), Haven (2015, #1 US Hard Rock Albums), and most recently 2018’s acclaimed The Shadow Theory (#2 US Hard Music Albums). KAMELOT‘s intense brand of ultramodern gothic and symphonic theatricality is amplified further and with more emotionality than ever on The Awakening.
